Heavy industries need to better predict and optimize electrical consumption / production in order to avoid huge penalties from electricity providers.
CoSMo HIRO couples and analyzes globally oil, steam and electricity networks, while taking into account the given list of manufacturing programs. The solution actually captures the dynamics of steam, electricity consumption and production between manufacturing programs. This leads to better predictions and better decision support especially when optimizing configuration and use of turbine power generation.
Understanding petrochemical industry processes as a complex system
Predicting and improving resources and energy consumption
CoSMo HIRO boosts resource efficiency on the short and long term by enabling operations managers simulate industrial processes of their choices. Resource consumption such as steam, commodities and energy are thus accurately planned based on a better prediction of energetic needs. More specifically, a better energy prediction leads to significant reduction in electricity penalties. Moreover, the operation managers can test various improvement decisions through what-if scenarios. According to the results, they can make precise adjustments and optimization processes that will drive production costs to decrease by optimizing the use of individual pieces of equipment (boilers, pressure valves, vents, turbo generators, condensing turbines).
CoSMo HIRO also provides decision support in case of failure or maintenance of turbines in the steam network depending on custom steam dispatching rules.
CoSMo HIRO solutions help energy intensive industries get a better understanding of complex and multi scale industrial processes in order to find global optimums and decrease their use of resources.
